Awww, c'mon! Luke is so boring! Give us a more interesting Jedi, like Kanan Jarrus or Ezra Bridger! Ooo, or Ezra's adventures after Season 4...

Japan's primary interest in Star Wars is the original trilogy.

They have excellent taste I see. Nothing better than the original- it was why the books had so many hits among the misses. Well established and classic.

Or that Jake Skywalker guy from Episode VIII that some fans are so determined to immortalize as his own separate entity! He was pretty beast in the end.

I have a feeling this will be a testing ground for a potential deal in which Disney buys Viz Media and puts it under the control of Marvel Entertainment. If that were to ever happen, it would probably be the last acquisition done by Disney under Bob Iger's tenure (Iger is set to retire in 2021).

I really hope not! Disney is too much of a monopoly as is! (With that Avatar...you don’t work for them, do you?)

I find the idea of anime/manga related so closely to disney extremely repulsive. Even writing it out feels wrong.

Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if that ever happens. Disney loves buying companies that no one else couldn’t afford/doesn’t want to buy.

Nope. However, I DID work for the Hollywood Studios theme park in Florida for half a year back in 2012 (It was through the Disney College Program).
